Audrey Kunin, MD, Dermatology, answeredChicken skin bumps -- such a simple yet instantly identifiable description of the skin problem named keratosis pilaris (commonly dubbed "KP.") Can't you just visualize it? These minute, rough bumps with their grater-like texture are most frequently scattered along the upper arms and thighs. However, the cheeks, back and buttocks can all become involved at one time or another. They're annoying, unsightly, chronic and incredibly commonplace.
